Hi all,

 

I have a Macbook pro and would like to buy a eGPU. I bought the AMD radeon RX 5700 XT 50th but still need a eGPU case. I searched the web and the most websites give the thumbs up to use the Razer Core X with a Macbook Pro. Now after searching the specs of both products I saw a little problem, the Razer Core X gives 650W and the Razer Core X Chroma gives 700W but both cases gives max 500W GPU power support (the 150W or 200W that is left is used for charging the laptop (100W) and the rest is for the mainboard thats inside of the case. For the Chroma is the extra 50W for the RGB leds that is inside). In the specs of the RX 5700 XT is written that the cards recommended PSU needs to be 600W. Would using this case with 100W less PSU give any issues to the  graphic card? If yess, does someone know an other eGPU case that gives the recommended 600W GPU power support (or even a bit more), with a 100W charging function that is fully supported by mac?

 

Thank you for taking time reading my problem and helping to find a solution for it.

 

Have a nice day.

 

With friendly greetings

Nick
